The three men who allegedly assaulted 6ix9ine in a gym have been arrested in Florida.

Rafael Medina Jr., 43; Octavious Medina, 23; and Anthony Maldonado, 25, were taken into custody for assaulting and robbing the rapper - real name Daniel Hernandez -  in an LA Fitness bathroom on March 21.

The three suspects were being booked into Palm Beach County jail Thursday night, deputies said,” the AP’s brief report read.

A video of the attack made the rounds on social media last week, where several men were seen kicking and punching the rainbow-haired rapper star as he cowered on the ground, leaving him bloodied, bruised and hospitalised for his injuries.

Police were apparently able to identify the trio in question thanks to the widespread surveillance footage and social media clips.

Last week, 6ix9ine’s lawyer revealed that Hernandez had been inside the sauna when he was randomly jumped by the group of men, who caused injuries to his jaw, ribs and back.

“He was attacked in a Sauna at a gym by three or four thugs who beat him up (he tried fighting back),” Lance Lazzaro said in a statement. 

“He had cuts to his face and bruises. Employees heard the disturbance and the perpetrators fled. Police in South Florida were called and he was transported via ambulance to a local hospital.”

It seems the injuries didn't stop the KEKE hitmaker from bouncing to Cuba, where he was spotted earlier this week meeting the locals.
